What do you need to do to prevent hair loss?

1. Use Rogane twice a day!

2. You can't do much about it since it's hereditary issue

3. Stay away from hair gel and spray

4. Wash your hair thoroughly when shampooing your hair

5. Release your stress

I know that sometimes stress has a lot to do with it. I know 3 women that I work with that have had actual chunks of hair fall out - to the point where they had silver dollar sized bald spots on different parts of their had. Their doctors told them it was due to stress and put them on medication. Eventually 2 of the 3 women quite and got their hair back. The other one's hair is just recently coming back (1.5 years later).

I know some people that have been on it. It has worked for three of the four, though it's a pain in the ass to put it on, leave it on for so long, then take a shower, then get ready for work and stuff. I'm thinking of trying Propecia.

I just ran into this issue myself. First thing you have to do is realize that you are losing your hair so you can do something about it. Don't wait. Go see a dermatologist and find out. I am only 22 and I started losing my hair a little less than a year ago. I started using propecia and I'm lucky that it has been effective for me.

Yes hats can stimulate further hair loss
Yes you should thoroughly wash your hair
and Yes Heredity is a Bitch

I have a question for you though, I read that Rogaine was ineffective on the front portion of the head. That is why I am using propecia. You should look into using propecia or avocor if you still feel like you are losing your hair. Go to the doctor and he will prescribe one of the two. Time is of the essance though. You may not be able to grow new hair but, most of the time these prescriptions can stop hair loss.

I don't baby my hair. I pull and tug it all the time to make sure the roots are nice and strong. I see women always tugging on their hair to put it in a ponytail or whatever and I don't see them losing their hair, so I figure I'll abuse mine too!

I Know this is an old-wifes-tale, so put as much faith into it as you want, but doesn't it sometimes help to either shave it completely, or atleast really really short?
If ya think about it, it kinda makes sence - after all, when you shave your face, it starts going faster and thicker than before you shaved, right?
I shave my head anyways (not completely, just real short) - I don't do it for the balding reason, but I figure it probably helps alittle.
Also what COWANNAGO said is probably really good for your hair too - like the constantly stimulating of the scalp I would THINK is a good thing.

But hey, if any of you guys do use those medication, let us know in a few months what the results are. I might need to know in a few years?

My beautician told me that if you stop using the Rogaine the hair just falls out again, so you're stuck with using it if you start.

Nair hurts and doesn't last ANY longer than shaving does. Also, how are you supposed to get someone to rub that crap on your back for you? It smells like burnt hair when you are wiping it off. But it does leave you smooth, for a couple days only though.

Dont worry about it so much go bald, be happy you have to spend less on haircuts, and more on your car.

Perhaps someone should start a new thread for advice on this male affliction

And Lethargic1, you sound like an infomercial!

That's true. I read that any hair that Rogaine keeps/grows back will fall out as soon as you stop using it (not like that instant). I'm kinda thinning so I thought about it but what's the point if I have to use it for life?

You should really just have a sense of humor about it. Your hair loss doesn't change who you are inside, and screw any chick that is so superficial about it.

A friend of mine was losing his hair and as a joke bought the worst wig he could find. We would go out to dinner and he would pretend to sneeze so that the back of the wig would flop up onto the top of his head.

Then he would leave it there! He would wait for someone to say something and then if they were female use it as an occasion to pick them up.

Women though he had a sense of humor and were attracted to him becasue of it.
